Hi! I’m Kirra Kelsay. I’m nine years old and I’m here to tell you all about Skydying Summer Camp I did this year!
Kirra’s Skydiving Summer Camp
Have you ever wanted to learn to fly? Me too! Which is why I was so excited when I found out Ifly Oceanside was having summer camps for kids!
I am Kirra Kelsay, I am nine years old and this past summer I got to attend a week of STEM camp at IFLY in Oceanside, California. Just in case you didn’t know STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math, all things that were implemented into this awesome week of camp.
One of my favorite parts of camp was making new friends and getting to know our counselor, Marco. Marco was amazing and so entertaining. He gave each of us nicknames, mine was KayKay. So we decided to give him a nickname as well, it’s Sir Marco the Third. Next time you visit Ifly be sure to say hello!
Another thing I loved about camp was learning really cool tricks in the wind tunnel. By learning to follow hand signals and pay attention to Marco’s moves I was able to do so much more than I could have imagined.
We did science experiments like making parachutes and dropping them off of the building to see who’s would fly the longest. Another experiment we did was estimating at what speed a ball would begin flying in the wind tunnel. I was so excited when my guess won!
Ifly is the perfect place to go whether you’re visiting or if you live here in San Diego. It is definitely one of my all time favorite experiences, and even my friend Aubrey that was visiting from Arizona had a blast at camp.
